The Best Western Oceanside's Website indicates that they do have Internet Access- I have not used it myself, so can't tell you more than that. I am sure that if they don't for any reason, they will be able to direct you to a nearby place that does.

Of those listed the St. Barts location is the only one I can see that wouldn't require you to have a car. Closest next to that are the ones on 17th St. , but look a bit too far to walk to. Hopefully your hotel has their own access of some sort for you.
